I’m an asylee, applying for my green card: Do I need a financial sponsor?
Recipients of asylum need not worry about the "public charge" ground of inadmissibility.
I was granted asylum in the U.S. just over a year ago, and am now putting together my adjustment of status application to get a green card. I keep seeing “Form I-864 Affidavit of Support” listed as part of the requirements to apply for adjustment of status. But I don’t have anyone who can be my financial sponsor. My income is very low, too. Do I need to have a sponsor fill out Form I-864 for me? Is my low income going to cause problems when I apply for the green card?
